Two time Grammy Award winner, John Prine, was a singer/songwriter who, from his eponymously titled first LP release in 1971, continued to write and perform songs that have become central to our American musical heritage. Long considered a "songwriter's songwriter," John Prine was a rare talent whose writing is greatly admired by his peers. With his career spanning more than 40 years, Prine continued to perform at sold out shows all over the US, Canada, and Europe. Among the many awards and accolades John has received in recent times include his 2003 induction into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame, an Americana Lifetime Achievement Award for songwriting and being honored at the Library of Congress by US Poet Laureate Ted Kooser. Prine has become for many, not just a well-loved and appreciated songwriter, but a bonafide American treasure.
